HOUSTON, Aug. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Natural Resource Partners L.P. (NYSE:NRP) announced today that it has completed the final acquisition of coal reserves at the Deer Run mine near Hillsboro, Illinois for $40 million from Colt LLC, an affiliate of the Cline Group.

The Deer Run mine is capable of producing approximately 7 million to 9 million tons annually once the longwall is at full production.  During the first six months of 2012, NRP reported revenue of $2.9 million based on production of approximately 630,000 tons related to the development of the mine.

"The Deer Run mine will be one of the lowest cost underground coal mines in the country with access to four different railroads and the river markets which bodes well for the marketing of this coal in any type of market conditions," said Nick Carter, President and Chief Operating Officer of Natural Resource Partners.
